Welcome to the club, be sure to change every single fluid in that car. Flush the trans, change the engine oil, flush the brakes, flush the power steering.

All of that stuff decomposes over time, and much of it picks up water.

Also change the timing belt, dry rot is nasty

And coolant, serpentine belt, balance shaft belt, water pump, thermostat with your timing belt while you’re at it

Thanks for the advice, flushed and replaced the fluids 2nd day I got it, getting the timing belt replaced this weekend as well as the water pump and serpentine since its opened up $600 for the work didn't seem like a bad deal
